I got over it (mostly) and life seems to have carried on as normal.
In the end, my 30th was a pretty relaxed affair with work for the day, and then a family dinner to the Chinese restaurant.
On the Saturday we had a bit of a 'do at my parent's place. It was Doctor Who themed because I am a geek and proud of it. However for the guests (none of whom are Whovians and very few of whom are into dressing up) I told them it was Time and Space, which meant they could dress as anything from time and/or space. Most people didn't get into it, a couple wore themed shirts, but a few went right out which was awesome. The main thing was that I had a lot of fun decorating everything in blue and silver, pulling out every Whovian thing I owned. I even bought a TARDIS dress especially for the night.

The main celebration for my 30th birthday though is this weekend: a few friends (including my parents, who I count as my friends) and I are heading to Brisbane for the weekend. We're meeting up with some other friends for a High Tea Saturday afternoon, and then some of us are off to QPAC to see Wicked. This will be the fourth time I've seen Wicked and I am so excited!
